Peninsula athletes had impressive finishes in several events. Equestrian vaulters Charlotte Galbraith and Courtney Cook finished well in their classes. Galbraith placed fourth in the first two days of competition and fifth in the final day, and Cook finished

fifth in the first two days of competition and fourth in the final day. With only four tenths of a point separating the first and fifth place finishers, Carol Whitehouse, Galbraith’s mother, said the competition was stiff. “It was a very, very exciting event for the girls,” she said. “The

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Residents give a tweet about songbirds Erin Cardone News staff

The Eastern grey squirrel and cats are on the radars of Peninsula bird lovers and plans are being made to protect local songbirds. “[Squirrels] are really eliminating a tremendous amount of our native wildlife,

not just birds,” North Saanich Coun. Elsie McMurphy said. North Saanich resident Virginia Smith was the catalyst for the issue when she made a presentation to council June 11. “We can help protect our rapidly declining songbird populations by providing safe nesting sites … and feeders positioned in a manner safe from cats

and grey squirrels,” Smith said. “If the council wants to ignore the loss of our songbird populations … perhaps they could at least consider putting in cat management bylaws.” The task of finding ways to protect songbirds was handed to the environmental advisory committee last week. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

rumbs in the keyboard or questionable web browsing history aren’t the only ways to tell who’s been using your computer. A newly patented biometric technology makes it possible to identify the person at the monitor based on keystroke habits and mouse movements alone. Potential for the technology, developed over the last 12 years by Issa Traore, a University of Victoria professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, and former PhD student Ahmed Ahmed, reaches well beyond the realm of surveilling a home office. The security of Internet banking, military communications and online testing stand to be revolutionized through the technology. It works by profiling user rhythms on the keyboard and mouse. This profile is then used to lock out any other users from that account or computer. When applied to password logins, the security protocol can identify users within five or six seconds based on how they type in their password. Even if someone else types in your password, it’s unlikely they could match

Groundbreaking computer security recognizes the unique way you type and move a mouse the subtle differences in keystroke timing and behaviour. It can also be set to continuously monitor a computer between login and logout – an application that requires about three to seven minutes of computer use, depending on how many keystrokes or mouse movements are made. In the event an intended user is called away from a work station and another user attempts to use the computer, the technology immediately recognizes the unintended user and locks them out. Biometric technology, which compares physical or behavioural traits to a database, includes fingerprint, facial or retinal scans. “Instead of a more traditional biometric system, like retinal or fingerprint recognition, that requires expensive hardware and is limited by users only being able to access the network from a specific computer, our system can be used

by anyone from any location,” Traore said. The system could solve the problem for universities of verifying student identification for high-level exams. “This is also a very accurate way of ensuring a student [taking an online exam] hasn’t given their password to someone else to take the exam, because right now we don’t have any other way to do that,” he said. In addition to development via 200 computer users at UVic, Traore tested the technology with software installed on his own home computer, where his 15-year-old son was locked out after he attempted to login under another family member’s unrestricted user account. The system has logged a 98 per cent success rate at UVic on a standard keyboard and mouse. Traore said they are working to adapt the technology to touch screens and tablet computers. “This technology has the potential to solve a big problem, and that problem is identity theft … and hacking,” said Chris Flores, industry liaison officer for UVic Industry Partnerships, an arm’s length branch of the university devoted to helping protect intellectual properties or new innovations developed on campus. nnorth@saanichnews.com

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Subdivision plans move ahead in NS Single family houses proposed for property near Victoria airport Erin Cardone News staff

A subdivision proposed near the airport is being targeted to young families. “This is the best site in North Saanich to do this where it doesn’t affect the rural ambience of the area,” Coun. Ted Daly said at a meeting last week. Developer Gary Lunn proposes to build about 39 single family houses at 9395 East Saanich Rd., at the corner with Canora Road. Lunn said he aims for prices starting at $400,000. “That’s a lot of money to come up with,” Don Caverley told councillors. “My concern is that $400,000 is not affordable and if the market will draw more,” that’s what the houses will sell for, added Mayor Alice Finall. “All we’re doing is making more housing for retirees somewhere else.” The layout of the property is yet to be decided, but councillors voted in favour of lots without laneways in the back, meaning parking would likely

be on the street in front of the houses and in the driveways. Lunn said he plans to build attached garages on the homes. “Laneways have some [esthetic] benefit, but bigger back yards have the appeal to families,” Coun. Craig Mearns said. Preliminary drawings show plans for a small park on the property. If the plans are to move ahead, public consultations will be required to amend the official community plan, which doesn’t currently allow single family houses on small lots. Communication with the public on this and other possible developments is essential, said Geoff Orr, president of the North Saanich Residents’ Association. “I’m concerned that the public at large is not clear what we’re dealing with specifically on this issue,” he said. Council will also decide on an “amenity package” in the future, with costs and services the developer will offer in exchange for allowing the development. With the exception of Coun. Elsie McMurphy, council supported the application in principle. It comes back to council in August. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Brentwood Bay’s Abby Speirs took third in girls triathlon, duathlon and aquathon. Team sports during the B.C. Summer Games were also dominated by Zone 6. Both undefeated in their preliminary games, Vancouver Island-Central Coast (Zone 6) and Fraser Valley (Zone 3) field lacrosse teams met in the gold medal final during the last day of competition and after an extremely even first half, Fraser Valley took command and beat out Zone 6, including Peninsula team members Colton Merilainen, James Thompson and Kurtis Young, for the gold. Brentwood Bay’s Isabella Kennedy and Alexander Va’a also took home silver medals with their teammates from Zone 6 in girls softball and boys rugby, respectively. Other sports represented by the 18 Peninsula athletes who competed included inline hockey, rowing, soccer and basketball. Visit www.bcgames.org for full results from the weekend’s events. The B.C.

Rental map aimed at househunting UVic students Edward Hill News staff

It’s been a rite of passage for University of Victoria students for decades – the desperate scramble to find housing before the September semester begins. One of those UVic students, a computer science PhD student, found his apartment hunting experience so maddening and time consuming, he did what any selfrespecting comp-sci guy does. He wrote a web app to solve the problem. Jamie Starke, 28, and Lars Grammel, 31, both with UVic’s computer human interaction software engineering lab (CHISEL), have created a web tool that combs through rental service databases and plots those rentals on a street map of Greater Victoria, which also shows all bus

routes that serve UVic. The web app, called the Victoria Rental Map, has slider widgets to customize a search to price, number of bedrooms, shared accommodation and distance from a bus stop on a UVic route. It updates itself at 6 a.m. every day. Starke conceived of the idea while apartment hunting with his wife in April. Not deeply familiar with the neighbourhoods of the region and their proximity to UVic, he found it frustrating to search between no less than 21 rental service agencies, plus Craigslist and UsedVictoria for something fit their budget and needs. “When I came here two years ago, looking for a place was terrible. This time I had a better idea about Victoria, but Fairfield versus Fernwood? I get mixed up all the time,” he said. “And many times it

looked like I found something that looked good with a good price, it was way out in Langford or Sooke.” Starke teamed up with Grammel, who specializes in mapping visualization tools, and started writing the code to comb through websites and databases for relevant data – price, location, style and number of bedrooms. “I decided instead of working four hours a night to find a place to live, I’d work on this three hours each night, and only one hour looking for an apartment,” he said laughing. Some minor glitches remain – it runs a bit slow on the iPad and doesn’t work at all on older Internet Explorer browsers, but Starke plans on improving the program when he can.

There is a common misconception that wearing corrective lenses weakens the eye and helps speed the deterioration of eyesight. There is absolutely no scientific basic for this. Studies have shown no difference in the course of a person’s eyesight with or without glasses. Sometimes it may seem as if the glasses make eyesight weaker. Uncorrected vision may appear worse than it did before glasses. This is because vision seems much less clear without glasses after enjoying the clear vision that they provide. We should not blame glasses for making vision worse as we age. Almost everyone develops the need for reading correction between the age of 39 and 45. This is because the focusing lens inside the eyes becomes less flexible and glasses are required to allow us to read comfortably. Straining your eyes and trying to force them to see without glasses will not in any way strengthen them. Actually the best way to keep eyesight at its best at any age is to get regular professional eyecare. Postponement or procrastination jeopardizes comfort, efficiency and even one’s safety.

OUR VIEW

Play it safe on the water As anyone who has been in the water with a dolphin, shark or marine mammal can easily tell you, human beings are not really made for swimming. We can do it and some of us can even do it quite well – for a human – but it’s not really our natural habitat. That fact should probably be kept in mind this summer as we head to the lakes, rivers and ocean beaches to enjoy what the Island has to offer. It’s fun to play in the water, to dive, surf and swim, but we should all make a point of keeping our wits very much about us while we’re doing it. The difference between a lovely family day at the beach and a horrifying trip to the morgue can sometimes rest on the smallest, briefest lack of focus. You swim up under a raft and come up too soon, hitting your head, you surf into another person, you jump off a cliff into the water without first checking what’s there – it doesn’t take much. It’s not just swimmers who have to be careful. Boaters too need to keep their wits about them. That starts with carrying all the necessary safety equipment on board whenever you leave the shore and with using it properly – such as actually wearing your life jacket instead of using it as a pillow. We’ve already seen a pair of offshore boating incidents near the Peninsula this year. It would be wonderful not to see another. One would hope it would be unnecessary to mention the need to keep water fun and alcohol fun entirely separate, but as we have seen again and again across this country, people in fact do need to be told – or rather, they need to actually pay attention to the many messages to this effect that are already out there. Let’s make sure that when we’re shivering in the rain this November, we are able to remember having fun in the sun without having to realize that it was the last time we saw a family member alive. – Parksville Qualicum Beach News What do you think?

teammates and I head out on Tour, Mount Washington stands in our way. It’s been said by many past riders that you don’t remember much of the riding – you’ll remember the community stops, the children you hug, the stories you hear and the emotions of it all, but not the biking. I made it to the top of Mount Washington that Sunday along with my team – and we were all elated – but I barely remember the ride. What’s stayed with me, instead, were the emotions I felt. I remember a few periodic moments of dread, when I looked up the road and saw steep, endless asphalt. And I remember the pride I felt – the smile plastered to my face – when I pulled in to the ski lodge, sweaty and panting, after conquering Mount Washington. Those emotion-filled memories, on both ends of the spectrum, are what I will take away from my experience as a Tour de Rock rider – it won’t be the Vancouver Island scenery or the six-hour rides along rolling Island roads.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW -Wednesday, July 25, 2012

LETTERS Some Peninsula roads aren’t easy on cyclists Re: Sharing the road with cyclists (The Mountie Post, July 13) The otherwise excellent column contained a serious error. Cpl. Erin Fraser writes, “cyclists must ride as close as possible to the right side of the highway.” That is not the law. The relevant provision of the B.C. Motor Vehicle Act states: “A person operating a cycle must … ride as near as practicable to the right side of the highway.” The Act is also clear that nothing “requires a person to ride a cycle on any part of a highway that is not paved.” Many of the roads and streets on the Peninsula have gravel or dirt shoulders and the edges of the pavement are uneven and jagged. The definition of highway is extremely broad and encompasses, roads, streets, alleys, lanes, etc. to which the public has access. The meaning of “practicable” has been the subject of several court decisions and often utilized dictionary definitions which include “an action that can be done as a matter of practice” and an act that is “sensible,” or “feasible” based on the circumstances. It is imperative riders leave enough room between themselves and parked vehicles to avoid being hit by

an opening door. Other hazards routinely encountered include glass, nails and other debris, potholes, uneven pavement, storm sewer grates with the slots parallel to the roadway, numerous parked vehicles in the marked bike lanes and cyclists who ride the wrong – and illegal – way by facing traffic. Motorists are often astounded when I explain that to make a left turn on my bike, I first have to move over and take the lane. The alternative would be to ride a block further and make three consecutive right turns. Also, to pass another cyclist, it is necessary to ride abreast for a certain distance. The dangerous myth perpetuated – and widely held by the general public and by too many police officers – is there is a legal obligation for cyclists to ride as closely as “possible” to the right edge of a roadway. As Cpl. Fraser points out, there is enough bad behaviour by some cyclists to occupy police without encouraging motorists to call in a complaint because a cyclist is not riding within a few inches of the curb. As Red Green, the Philosopher at Possum Lodge reminded us every

Readers respond: Harper’s politics did us no favours Re: Harper’s leadership helped us through economic crisis (Letters, July 6) I understand the writer is absolutely entitled to her opinion, but I have to wonder where Ms. Nattrass has been since 2008, never mind 2006. A world financial storm was brewing in 2008 and during the election of that year Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his minions, including your hero (I assume) Gary Lunn, refused to acknowledge that crisis. In fact they bailed out our banks to the tune of $275 billion and refused to tell us about it, then had to prorogue parliament to avoid being booted out. MP Elizabeth May tried with her delays, as you called them, to return some semblance of parliamentary process to Canada, but not according to Ms. Nattrass who obviously doesn’t want anyone but Harper to have any say in what happens here in Canada. I suggest you try to read that so-called budget bill. There were, in both houses of parliament, in debates and committees, nearly 1,000 amendments proposed and not even one was considered by Harper and his “yes” puppets. Harper’s desire to change parliament would not allow that. You obviously want a different Canada than I do, Ms. Nattrass, and unfortunately for the rest of us, you will probably get it. Let us hope for my grandchildren’s

week, “We’re all in this together.” Dwayne W. Rowe Sidney ■■■ I applaud Cpl. Erin Fraser for reminding motorists that cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities on our public roads. Cpl. Fraser goes on however, to make a mistake in stating that “cyclists must ride as close as possible to the right side of the roadway.” There is a considerable difference in meaning between possible and practicable. Practicable basically means “as far as is safe.” So while it may be possible to ride to the extreme right of a roadway, often it is not practicable, for one must avoid parked cars, their opening doors, potholes, glass, rocks and other obstacles for safety. Which brings us to the No. 1 fact which most motorists don’t seem to be aware of: one may not pass a cyclist or any other road user until it is safe to do so. This means that on the ubiquitous narrow roads of our area, one is not permitted to pass a cyclist if there is oncoming traffic, for there simply isn’t enough room to give the required

minimum of one metre distance between your vehicle and the cyclist without going into the oncoming lane. Without exception, every time I’m cycling, this occurs. A motorist will charge up from behind and even with oncoming traffic in clear sight, or into blind corners or hills, they will – in some strange, muleheaded sense of entitlement – proceed with a highly dangerous and illegal pass, either inches away from me, nearly ending my life, or directly into the path of oncoming vehicles. Stunning. In such instances, the cyclist has the right to “own the lane,” preventing the motorist from attempting their illegal and unsafe pass. I suggest that if motorists were to simply view cyclists as other legal and legitimate road users, this would go a long way in the much needed attitudinal shift from rights to responsibilities. Note too that much of the problem resides in the old, poorly designed roadways, and the moment dedicated cycling lanes are created, nearly all conflicts vanish. We need more of them. C.

sakes that the damage is not irreversible. To call Ms. May a buffoon when she has already done more for the Saanich Gulf Islands riding and for all of Canada than Lunn did in all the years he was at the trough is very partisan. Oddly enough May is working for you too even if you did vote for Lunn and I do not believe she lied, cheated on election rules or used illegal robocalls, nor did she manipulate election finances to get elected. If you cannot see through your rose coloured glasses to the incredible mess Harper caused to both Canadian democracy and to our standard of living which has steadily fallen whilst our national debt and deficit have risen since 2006, then maybe you cannot see we only have our ducks in a row in the Corporate Party of Canada’s eyes. Sorry, Ms. Nattrass, as much as I would love to agree with you Canada is not even in the top 10 anymore, except in our disdain for the environment, and there we are definitely No. 1. Jeremy Arney Central Saanich

PM dismantling Canadian institutions Re: Harper’s leadership helped us through economic crisis (Letters, July 6) I must agree with Eileen Nattrass that Canada is No. 1. Canada has the best public broadcaster in the world in the CBC and Prime Minister Stephen Harper is busy dismantling it.

Canada has a health care system that is held up as a model by many. It was a hard won victory of the common good over the selfish profiteering of conservatism. Canada had a framework of checks and balances that protected our environment, economy and social framework, which MP Elizabeth May boldly tried to defend in the House. Now the Harper government, with the passage of Bill C-38, has taken a giant step to dismantle the Canada we love. Canada has managed to maintain its sovereignty in the shadow of the biggest economic and military machine in the world. Harper is now selling that sovereignty to the highest bidder. And finally, Ms. Nattrass, the reason we were able to weather the Paulson-Bush induced global economic collapse is that Paul Martin, in a Liberal government, balanced our budget. It is the strong regulatory framework that was put in place by what you refer to as “buffoons,” that limited the speculative excesses of greed in our banking system. But please, Ms. Nattrass, don’t let the facts get in the way of your talking points. Thomas Teuwen Sidney

Mayor’s tactics don’t impress ex councillor Re: The impassable chasm widens (News, July 20) I had to respond to the motion that the mayor of North Saanich

wanted Coun. Ted Daly censured. I sat on council with this mayor for two years and during that time the bully tactics that were displayed by her team of councillors against me were one of the reasons that I resigned as a councillor. Lack of respect, inclusion on decision, hijacking of agenda made serving the district impossible. Hiring a mediator might serve a purpose for Daly and the three Team North Saanich councillors, but the others simply decide their decisions are correct and we are the ones who need to change to comply with their agenda. The whole process would be a waste of time and money. One of the big frustrating factors for this council is the co-operation of the mayor and

chief administrative officer. The CAO of any municipality should serve all council. That is their mandate, not just the pleasure of the mayor. It is time for this mayor to understand there are many citizens in this district who disagree with her type of politics and do want some changes made in the district so we can afford to stay and live here.

The Sidney Business Association does not want the town to have to absorb those costs, but feels charging an additional $13,000 is an exorbitant amount. Although not within their purview, the mayor and council registered concerns about the finances of the Sidney Business Association. The Sidney Business Association is and always has been an open and transparent organization. In order to alleviate any present and future concerns in this regard, the board of directors has committed to have the financial statements posted on our website within 30 days.

Submarine torpedo shot a first for Canada Laura Lavin News staff

HMCS Victoria sent a U.S. navy ship to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean last Tuesday with a precisely aimed war shot. It was the first time in history Canadian Forces fired a live torpedo in a training exercise. Victoria successfully fired an MK48 Heavyweight Torpedo on USNS Concord, which had been decommissioned for the purpose. “It’s a unique opportunity that we have through RIMPAC [Rim of the Pacific Exercise] to actually do live fire, with a target made ready for such an event,” said Capt. (Navy) Luc Cassivi, chief of operations for Maritime Forces Pacific and director of the Canadian Submarine Force. While the sailors train for months using “torpedoes” decked out with technical equipment, there’s nothing like using real ammunition to know you’re doing it right, he said. “[This] gives us full validation that every-

our war-fighting skills and increase our interoperability with our coalition partners,” said Vice-Admiral Paul Maddison, commander of the Royal Canadian Navy. “Each nation benefits from the collective diversity of military training and experience of the other participants while completing their own training objectives and increasing their own level of proficiency.” Firing the torpedo was a milestone for the crew, Cassivi said. “It’s an event in which a lot of local people can be proud. Contractors, technical teams who looked after the Victoria’s refit; everyone who supported the sea trials and [training] in Nanoose.” The Concord was a Mars-class combat stores ship commissioned in 1968, decommissioned and transferred to Military Sealift Command in 1992 and deactivated in 2009. It was environmentally certified before the Canadian Forces spent the day firing on it from both sea and air. The torpedo firing was the “culminating event of the day,” Cassivi said. editor@oakbaynews.com

Six voices win award Hexaphone, Victoria’s six-member a cappella ensemble, won the Elmer Iseler Prize for the Best Performance of a Canadian Composition at the International Choral Kathaumixw, a biennial five-day choral festival in Powell River. The award was announced at the closing gala concert on July 7. Hexaphone, which includes Carolyn Howe (soprano), Hannah Mitchell (alto), John Doughty (tenor), Ian Bullen (tenor), Nicholas Fairbank (baritone) and Paul Boughen (bass), sang Four Limericks written by composer Fairbank. The composition for six voices was presented in the Contemporary Choral music competition at Kathaumixw. Hexaphone repeated its winning performance of Four Limericks to

the assembled audience and international choirs attending the gala concert. The ensemble also placed second in the two classes that they entered, competing against choirs from Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, China, Mexico, the United States and the Philippines. Now in its 10th season, the group was formed in 2002 with the goal of performing diverse styles of vocal music, one voice to a part. Hexaphone has become a highlight of Victoria’s music scene, singing music of many styles and periods, with a particular focus on new Canadian works. The group has appeared at the Victoria Symphony’s New Currents Festival, the Voice++ Festival and the New Music in New Places concert series. llavin@vicnews.com

The Peninsula Warriors junior B lacrosse team battled hard against the Saanich Tigers in the first round of playoffs at Panorama Recreation Centre last week but came up just short of making it to the next round. The Warriors, who finished regular season league play in second place, went up against the Saanich Tigers in a three game battle. The first game on July 16 was played hard by both teams

and saw the Warriors clinch the first win with a 5-3 final score. Unfortunately the second game the next night was too close for comfort and saw the Warriors lose by only one point with a final score of 8-7. The third game on July 19 saw them slip out of the playoff spot with a final score of 6-11. The Saanich Tigers now face the Cowichan Thunder Thursday at Bear Mountain Arena and Friday at Panorama for the Island banner and a spot at provincials. sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

Two local track and field athletes’ suitcases were a little heavier coming home from Coquitlam this past weekend. Maggie Hanlon and Casey Atkin, who train out of Pacific Athletics, had a successful stint at the B.C. Track and Field Championships held July 13-15 with both women medalling in events, as well as setting personal and season’s best times. Hanlon had a personal best in the 400 m (senior), placing first with a time of 56.5 seconds. Shortly after, she placed first in the 100 m (senior). Hanlon then finished off the weekend with a third gold medal in the 200 m. At the senior national trials, Hanlon represented B.C. and placed ninth in the 100 m with her second fastest time in the 100 m (11.94 seconds), and 11th in the 200 m. Atkin, recovering from an injury earlier this season, had a close finish in the 400 m with a season’s best of 57.09, placing second in the B.C. championships (junior). On day three of the championships, Atkin placed second in the 200 m (junior). “Every time we race we want to do better than the previous

time,” said Hanlon. “We left [provincials] happy, but as athletes we always want to do better.” With the provincials behind them, the two are looking forward to travelling to Europe in August to compete in two Flanders Cup Meets in Leuven and Merksen, Belgium with two other team members, Claire Donner (long jump) and Olivia Merritt (javelin). “This is a trip we’ve wanted to do for a few years, but it kept getting pushed backwards because of the cost and when the events in Belgium fell,” explained Hanlon. “This year was a good year because we’ve had time to fundraise and also because we didn’t have teams to make in August. For instance, last year one mem-

ber of the team that’s going this year had Western Canada Games trials in August so we couldn’t go. So this year was just the right time.” The Sidney branch of the Bank of Montreal is supporting the women’s trip with funds from their charity account and Peninsula Gallery is also working with the athletes to help them fundraise and gain the international experience. In the Sidney BMO, there is currently a silent auction happening for a print by Kathryn Mullaney and on Aug. 3 the branch will host a jeans day, bake sale and larger silent auction.

Specializing in oceanfront and other fine properties

Driving along Lochside Drive, where it parallels the sea, the town has had planted clumps of day lilies (Hemerocallis) which look spectacular with the blue water behind them. Those flower beds alongside the seaside walkway were an inspired thought. They add so much pleasure to passing drivers and to the folks using the seawalk. This is lily season for sure. There are two very ordinary orange-ish ones flowering on the balcony right now, with two more in a separate pot still in bud, colour unknown. It makes me scream when I think of the lilies I had on Melissa Street – 15 of them in pots on the deck, all different, everything from tiger lilies to lily of the Nile, and in the front garden, in shade, a monster which reached seven feet tall – too tall to see inside the

RUST, Constance Mary (nee Morgan) March 20, 1920 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; July 19, 2012 Connie passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Sidney, BC at age 92. She is lovingly remembered by her three daughters Linda Glover (Neil), Lorna Clark and Judy Hoffmann (Henry); 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 33 years, David Herbert Rust. Connie was born in Wem in Shropshire, England, the youngest of 3 children. At age 21 she became a PT and drill instructor in the Royal Air Force. It was there that she met David. It was love at ďŹ rst sight. She had ďŹ ve days to arrange her wedding. They spent three months of leave together, enjoying an ideal honeymoon before they headed to Canada, Connie as a War Bride. They came over together on the Louis Pasteur, with 100 other War Brides, and hundreds of men, landing in Halifax on March 5, 1945. The couple ďŹ rst lived in Edmonton, Alberta, and then Whitehorse, Yukon, where Connie was the secretary to the Anglican bishop and David owned Rustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewellers. They moved to Sidney in 1967 where David brought the family jewelry business, and worked until he passed away, Remembrance Day of 1977. Connie maintained the business until 1991. She enjoyed travelling, taking many cruises, including Panama Canal and South PaciďŹ c. She made many friends, through her bowling and line dancing as well. Connie was the treasurer of AbbeyďŹ eld for the past 27 years and was a beloved and faithful member of St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parish. She will be dearly missed by family and friends whose lives she touched, and also by her canine companion, Kylie. Special thanks to AbbeyďŹ eld, St. Andrews parish, My Caregivers, her housecleaner, and hairdresser, the dog walkers and especially the Stevens family. A memorial service in the celebration of Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, 9691 Fourth Street, Sidney, on Friday, July 27 at 2 pm with reception following. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, please donate to the charity of your choice, in Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory.

Philanthropy Smart & Caring Kicks Off

The Victoria Foundation & Black Press Working Together – how philanthropy shapes our community

with Victoria Foundation and Governor General There were kicks, hits, tosses and high-fives July 19 as the Victoria Foundation launched its Smart & Caring Community Fund with the help of the Governor General of Canada. The flurry of physical activity took place because one of the initiatives the $200,000 matching fund will support is a physical literacy program for young children. Program participants demonstrated activities for His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston and a crowd of more than 400 people at the Pacific Institute for

“[It] is a great way to support children, to help them battle inactivity and gain confidence. In turn, they might be inspired to help others throughout their lives, building on the kindness that they were shown early on. And who knows what they will think of to transform our communities in the future? And when this happens across the country, a better Canada is the result.” – His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston

Sport Excellence. Victoria’s fund is the first in a national Smart & Caring initiative of Community Foundations of Canada. Inspiration came from His Excellency in an address to the organization last year where he called on Canada’s community foundations to help develop a smarter and more caring Canada to celebrate the nation’s 150th anniversary in 2017.

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston presented Caring Canadian Awards to 10 B.C. residents. The Award recognizes individuals who volunteer their time to help others and to build a smarter and more caring nation. From left to right: Marie Therese Scott, Herbert Pitts, Anne Waterhouse, Tom Burley, Jim Reed, His Excellency The Right Honorable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, Gwyn Frayne, Lydia Kasianchuk, Keith Pattinson, Charles Burkett, Betty Anne Devitt.

CHECKLIST

Participants of the ABCs of Physical Literacy program demonstrate their skills for His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston. Seated next to him are Sandy Richardson, CEO of the Victoria Foundation, Ian Bird, CEO of Community Foundations of Canada. Andrea Carey, of Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence, is at the podium explaining the physical literacy activities.

Charles (Chuck) Burkett receives his Caring Canadian Award. Burkett is a former Chair of the VF Board of Directors, current Chair of VF Honorary Governors, founding Board member of Arts Sustainability Victoria and Director of the Victoria Commandery of the Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller.
